Our murky and convuluted history means that some units bear names such as Fusiliers, Rifles, Guards, Dragoons etc. Normally due to some foot note in their history... So... Rangers. There have been the Royal Irish Rangers, the Connaught Rangers and Sherwood Rangers but why did they use the term 'Ranger'? The Sherwood Rangers had a 'Bugle' (similar to LI) in their capbadge. Any ideas? And steers to information on the matter?
